The Agent Orange in Vietnam Fund Da Nang Project

Commitment by

Stanley S. Litow, President, IBM Found., VP, Corp Affairs, IBM, The Aspen Institute

In 2011, The Aspen Institute committed to establish the Agent Orange in Vietnam Fund to gather and deploy resources from public and private donors to address the disability issues that remain as a legacy of the war in Vietnam. The Aspen Institute aimed to take a holistic approach to this work by addressing public health, and the environmental and economic implications of this legacy. In 2011, the Aspen Institute planned to launch the fund's first project - the Da Nang Public Private Partnership for Children (PPP) - a new initiative to bring training, education and rehabilitation services to 235 Vietnamese children and young people living with disabilities in the Cam Le area of Da Nang.
